Good food and great music

We had discovered this restaurant online before we visited Lucca and were delighted with it in reality. We enjoyed our meal outside on a quiet piazza looking up at the wonderful fresco of Basilica of San Frediano. The jazz music and good wine list added to the relaxing atmosphere.

I spent a few weeks in Lucca and stopped in here one evening before a show at the very nearby theater. The food was average and selection very minimal. I had a nice glass of the house wine. Service was fair as was the atmosphere. Wouldn't return.

Stopped in with friends for a glass of wine one evening.....The staff were very engaging and invited us back for music later in the week. We had a great evening and enjoyed the amazing local wines. I even had a case shipped back home to the States.....My local wine shop can not get these wines for me but Lars readily... More

Carole and Lars have set this wonderful Lucca Wine Bar/Restaurant up to be a really individual and different, very welcoming venue and they really have succeeded. With an exceptionally good representation of the local Lucchese wines, at very reasonable prices and regular entertainment from local musicians who are truly gifted.In their art I can thoroughly recommend this venue to all....

We went here last Friday, a number of local artists / bands played music thoughout the evening, from Opera to Jazz. There was some real talent! The atmosphere was friendly and buzzing, and the owners were very welcoming. Food was also really good, I'm a vegetarian and I enjoyed the choices they offered, but everyone else's dishes went down well... More

Had a night out at Enoteca Calasta last Friday with family and friends to celebrate the end of a family holiday. We were not disappointed! The venue is intimate with a vibrant atmosphere and the hosts Lars & Carole are both friendly and professional. The food was excellent and plenty of choice for the vegetarians amongst us as well as... More

We stopped for a drink prior to the Puccini concert at the church across the street. The performers were in this crowded contemporary cafe having an expresso. I ordered their house drink which had gin, lime juice, and some sort of ginger drink. It was good....

Good spot in Lucca's cathedral district with friendly hosts and specialist beers and wines. High quality light snacking options too and a great place for some people watching!

Lovely place on a nice square, very quiet when we arrived. We wanted a light tasty lunch and that's what we got, I had the lasagne and my wife spinach and ricotta ravioli in sage butter, lasagne was great the ravioli was a knock-out dish. Tasty and very ample bread was used to mop up the nice mix of excellent... More

We stopped for lunch during an afternoon visit to Lucca. We had anti pasti followed by their gorgeous cakes, all washed down with brilliant wines - prosecco and a merlot. Spent a really relaxing couple of hours, eating, drinking and watching people go past to attend a local wedding. We highly recommend this place, for food, wine, people watching and... More
